Most Helpful Reviews Dr. Brown’s Glass Bottles.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 9/18/2009 – I love these glass bottles!… These bottles don’t have any labels on them, the Dr.Brown’s is actually etched on the bottle as are the oz’s, which means no pealing or flaking. The bottles are a little heavier than the BPA free ones obviously because they are glass…. They clean easily enough and can go right in the dishwasher and come out spotless! I am very pleased with Dr Brown’s bottles and their customer service! If you’ve ever had an issue and had to deal with a customer service rep from Dr Brown’s they are EXCELLENT! They fully stand behind their product! (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 5/23/2012 – I love these bottles!… They are very durable I have not had any issue with cracking or breaking. I have had no leaks, and they seem to keep the baby from having gas. I personally, would not suggest buying glass bottles in 8oz size, because babies large enough to use the 8oz size can and tend to throw their bottles…. But I do highly recommend these glass bottles in the 4oz bottles, you will really get your monies worth. The glass bottles will last you through more than one child and still look brand new; while the plastic ones will develop a foggy color, fade, and eventually smell odd….

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 5/18/2012 – Dr. Brown’s glass bottles are perfect. They heat up faster and stay warm longer than plastic bottles. They are easy to clean and fit in most bottle carriers for easy travel…. No air bubbles= a less gassy baby! (read more and buy it at Diapers.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 1/22/2012 – … The cleaning hasn’t bothered me. It comes with a thin brush for cleaning the valve parts. I don’t know if the valve system really works, but my baby gains weight just fine…. Assembled, this bottle is taller than most (8.75in), so you may need a taller bottle cooler for travel. It comes with 2 travel discs to decease leaking, but they should still stay upright. I decided to buy the Dr. Brown screw-on travel caps for travel. These bottles will screw directly onto my Medela pump, too. (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 3/27/2010 – I used these bottles for my twins(and the Dr Brown’s 3.5 oz glass bottles too for the first few months) and I am SO happy we used glass instead of plastic! They are way easier to clean! Believe me, I’ve washed my share of bottles in the past 6 months since my girls were born – and the extra parts really aren’t an issue – you just use the little brush that comes with the bottles. I’m not sure if the filter helped with colic or digestive issues since these are the only type of bottles that I used , but my babies didn’t have a lot of problems spitting up and did not have colic.

What the Makers Say

  • Our Dr. Brown’s bottle features a patented two-piece internal vent system that works unlike any other bottle design. The vent system fully vents our bottle for vacuum-free feeding, which we call positive-pressure flow, similar to breastfeeding. As the baby feeds, air is channeled from the nipple collar through the vent system, bypassing the breastmilk or formula, to the back of the bottle. Air never mixes with the breastmilk or formula which minimizes oxidation and helps preserve essential nutrients like vitamins C, A and E.Babies feed more comfortably because the vent system allows them to nurse without fighting the negative effects of a vacuum or the discomfort of ingesting air bubbles. This helps to reduce feeding problems like colic, spit-up, burping, and gas. The breastmilk or formula flows freely, without nipple collapse.
